Art ‘n’ Words Studio celebrated its 6th year in August 2019 with the release of two new books.

Owner Cindy Lapeña, artist and award-winning author, has released her third novel, Welcome Inn, which takes a close look at the life of an islander who is caught up in the waves of cultural change on PEI when his family springs one surprise after another.

An immigrant to PEI in 2007, Cindy Lapeña established Art ‘n’ Words Studio in 2013, two years after she held her first one-woman art show at The Guild.

In the same year, she released her first novel, The Lost Amulets, and a 5-book series for teachers of English, 101 Fun Games, Activities, and Projects for English Classes. In 2016, she released her second novel and sequel to the first novel, The Amulet of Fire.
